The quintet is the only K-pop act to debut in 2019 to score multiple entries on World Albums.

Tomorrow X Together continue to show their promise as a leading K-pop rookie with their first full-length album.

The boy band's new release The Dream Chapter: Magic debuts at No. 3 on Billboard's World Albums chart, selling 2,000 copies sold in the week ending Oct. 24, according to Nielsen Music. Previous to this, Tomorrow X Together hit No. 1 with their debut EP The Dream Chapter: Star making TXT the only K-pop act to debut in 2019 score two entries on the chart.

TXT also bow at No. 6 on Heatseekers Albums, a chart that sees far fewer K-pop acts land and indicates a Billboard 200 debut wasn't far off. The band previously hit No. 2 on Heatseekers Albums with their debut EP.

The quintet also rush into Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart this week, earning an additional four new entries. The Dream Chapter: Magic's whimsical rock-pop single "9 and Three Quarters (Run Away)" leads the pack debuting at No. 2, selling 2,000 copies, according to Nielsen Music, putting them only behind their Big Hit Entertainment label mates BTS whose "Make It Right" featuring Lauv re-enters the chart to a new peak at No. 1.

The guys also bow with the album's experimental opening track "New Rules (which debuts at No. 16), R&B ballad "20cm" (at No. 18) and bouncy album closer "Angel or Devil" (No. 21). This brings the band's total number of entries on World Digital Song Sales to eight after the guys sent four songs from The Dream Chapter: Star to the chart, including hitting No. 1 with debut single "Crown." 

After breaking records and topping multiple charts with their debut, Tomorrow X Together's sophomore release still positions them as a leading K-pop group in terms of sales and chart positions, as well as one establishing their own place in the industry.
